highway goes on and on. wikipedia. brian: you shut it off that's why it didn't answer. ainsley: is it a good highway does it have potholes. steve: along the way the democratic party hit a pothole yesterday. brian: what an embarrassment. steve: no kidding. what started out on monday as a house resolution to condemn the language used by freshman incoming congresswoman ilhan omar, it started as an anti-semitic resolution but then backlash from young democrats. nancy pelosi backed down and wound up introducing a kitchen sink resolution condemning all kinds of hate impacting a dozen different groups, including muslims, latino, asian americans lbgt people and a list of other groups subject to hate. in other words, they came up with resolution that just said hate is bad. ainsley: it was overwhelmingly passed 407 people said yes.
23 all republicans said no to it and one who happened to be steve king who faced the blow back stepping down from committee for his comments about white nationalism. look at the people who voted yes. even dan crenshaw our congressman in texas said i voted yes. he sees it for what it really is. lead's be honest a deceitful way for democrats to give omar cover. her belief won't change her committee assignment should. brian: anti-semitic remarks date back to 2000 12. gutless maneuver by democrats who cannot get together on condemning anti-semitic behavior they decided to do something we learned in second grade don't say bad things about people. steve: we learned that in kindergarten. brian: i didn't go to preschool which i'm behind. i still want to go back and correct the record on that. the freshman have wielded more power than the 70-something-year-old speaker of the house. the democrats should be embarrassed. joe lieberman of all people,
a jewish democrat spoke i can't believe what's happened to his party. >> if people in the democratic party don't stand up respectfully and hold her accountable for her anti-semitic remarks then others are going to feel they can do the same or they can take on other groups religious, racial or anything else with hatred. and that undercuts the unity that has always been the great strength of america. ainsley: i think the reason here nancy pelosi is scared about losing control of her party. she is trying to condemn anti-hate speech without really condemning it or condemning all types of speech and that way she doesn't have to name ilhan omar directly. steve: ilhan omar actually voted for the resolution that originally was supposed to condemn her comments. brian: her name of is not in it she should be high fiving everybody. steve: nowhere is it mentioned. nancy pelosi went out of her
way to make excuses for omar and said things yesterday like this. nancy nancy it is one resolution addressing the forms of hatred not mentioning her name because it's not about her. i do not believe that she understood the full weight of the word. i feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-semitic attitude but that she didn't have a full appreciation of how they landed on other people where these words have a history and a cultural impact that might have been unknown to her. brian: by the way, she is insulting that woman in saying that she didn't understand this congresswoman from minneapolis. by the way they sat down with her in minnesota and tried to explain to her how some of her remarks about it's all about the benjamins, baby would be are a little bit offensive. nancy pelosi a week ago we condemn these remarks and call upon congresswoman omar to immediately apologize. now she truly doesn't understand the gravity of her remarks so i will
condemn everything bad in the world and the useless resolution that even embarrassed fellow democrat eliot engel who said what is going on here? steve: look, it's the third time she has been criticized as a member of congress for things she has said. brian: put a countdown clock on the television, steve until the next time because it's coming up over and over again. steve: you would hope that she has learned that words have impact as nancy pelosi said. look, the party is split. if you sanction and here's why. while some people say it had to be about anti-semitism, if you sanction omar for her allegiance comments which she made last wednesday without mentioning the hatred that she has faced as a somalia somali refugee, then you are missing the point. >> this is something the democrats special the candidates do not want to have to answer. cory booker a prime example was dodging the questions listen to this. >> so any questions? anybody? oh. there right in front of me,
yeah. >> senator, so regarding the controversy surrounding congresswoman omar. >> can we do off topic questions when we finish? i will happily sit and finish and talk with you about that. is there anything on this piece of legislation that's out there? i can't see the people in the back such a big room. no questions on that? then i will end this press conference and let my colleague here take -- are you walking all the way back over there? ainsley: that is so funny. brian: is that the guy you want as president. ainsley: who questions. then you ask a question he doesn't like we are going to end this press conference right now. brian: to me right there if you learned anything from president trump, he takes all questions at any time. i will call into shows. he will take wild questions walking in and out of the white house. sometimes he causes controversy in doing it but is he transparent in answering it. ainsley: anything but that. brian: i would like to answer any question that makes me like a good candidate. mano a mano wasn't that a
presser for marijuana? steve: it was and it went off the rails. more on that later. let's talk a little bit later about paul manafort. brian: worst person ever. underline that worst person ever as he has been outlined for the past two years. steve: if you watch certain channels they have depicted that man like that. he, as you know, famously was convicted but not of russian collusion and judge t.s. ellis in washington, d.c. area reminded people who went to the sentencing yesterday mr. manafort was not convicted for anything to do with russian collusion. it had to do with his taxes. brian: steve, after that everybody at msnbc passed out. steve: here is why they passed out. because the federal sentencing guidelines were he should wind up with 20 years behind bars. he wound up with just a little under 4 years. and the judge ellis called the guidelines excessive and knowing that he was going to be criticized, he told the courtroom that anyone who didn't think the punishment was enough time should go
and spend a day, a week in jail in the federal penitentiary, he, mr. manafort, has to spend 47 months there. ainsley: and face 50,000 dollars in fines. brian: this is the person they say is the worst person ever and no russian collusion by this judge and this is a paul manafort who was first a cooperating witness and then wasn't so the mueller probe wanted to pound him and instead he gets four years. four years is going to be tough. the nine months has always been served. >> some of which has been in solitary confinement. most of his transgressions happened before he even met donald trump and for those people who keep drawing lines to russia, keep in mind he owes money to this oligarch and on top of that he was keeping that guy in the loop to show how important he was and how he might be good for it down the line. ainsley: he was hiding his income overseas and democrats or people in the media especially, they wanted him to get more time
apparently. as you said, the sentencing could have been between 19 and 24 years in prison. he got four years. many people would say that's enough. that's a lot. steve: ainsley, then others who say hey, look, this guy broke the rules and he should go away for a long time and when it was released that he is going to get 47 months they were apoplectic. watch this. >> it's sort of like when they wheeled hannibal lecter in on that gurney in silence of the lambs. i have very little sympathy for paul manafort at this point. >> impeachment only option protecting the country chairman not working in the american interest. >> his days of $10,000 suits are over. no matter how this plays out, is he going to prison for some period of time, most likely a long time. brian: how about four years. 40-something months prison. he is going to go next week in d.c. and get sentenced for additional crimes. ainsley: comparing him to hannibal lecter?
didn't he murder people? steve: yeah, absolutely. brian: see if this is the beginning of the collapse of the russian collusion or aberration. and when mueller drops his report? who knows, it could be today. see if it's something that goes on a similar path as we just witnessed. steve: mueller started all out about russian collusion. that's what the probe, the scope memo outlined that is exactly what he is supposed to look at. now there have been some convictions but none having to do with trump and russia collusion. ainsley: all right. well, for those of us not breaking the law it's a good day, it is a friday. jillian: yes, it is a friday. let's get you caught up on a friday starting with this fox news alert. a man charged with murdering an illinois sheriff's deputy facing the death penalty. floyd brown shot and killed mchenry county deputy after jumping from a third story of a hotel trying to avoid an arrest warrant. brown then leading a high speed chase which turned into a six hour standoff. deposit any keltner spent 13
years on the force. he leaves behind a wife and two kids. awful who knew him say he died doing what he loved. the girlfriend of embattled r and b singer are speaking out. they deny the claim that the singer brain washes and holds them hostage. >> when i was 17, my parents were actually making me, trying to get me to take photos with him. take sexual videos with him. all kinds of stuff. everything that he is saying is true. our parents are basically out here just to get money. >> r. kelly was not supposed to be at the interview. he was reportedly steps away the whole time. r. kelly is facing several sexual abuse charges. is he behind bars in chicago for not paying child support. turning now to extreme weather and extreme risk of avalanches in colorado. at least three major snow slides reported in the state burying cars and rupturing a gas line. >> i have never seen

ainsley: economists 180,000 jobs unemployment rate ticked down to 3.9%. steve: stuart varney of fox business joins us. stuart, essentially, you feel if you are watching right now and you want a job there is one out there for you? >> yes, sir. this is as good a time as i can remember to be an american worker. there are plenty of jobs out there. and the report that we're going to get in a couple of hours' time i think it will show that america has the strongest economy of all the industrial democracies. europe is slowing down. japan is slowing down. china is slowing down. america growing with 7 million unfilled jobs. now, that's quite a position to be in. ainsley: cosco is following suit. amazon $15 an hour thing and now costco is doing this. brian: without federal regulations. >> no regulation, they are just doing it costco 245,000 workers in america.
they have just raised the minimum they will pay anybody is $15 an hour. that's the second time that they have raised wages in the last year. why they're doing it? they have got to retain the workers they have got and they have got to pay more to attract other workers. that's what happens in a full employment economy. steve: amazon is having a problem whole foods unit they jacked up the hourly wage 15 bucks. because it costs so much more they are cutting back people's hours. >> this appeared in the guardian no friend of amazon jumping on what might be negative pr. you are right. amazon pays $15 an hour. their whole foods workers it's hard to make whole foods profitable at that kind of wage level so they cut back the hours. so the gross payment of wages is cut back a little by amazon in this case according to some reports at the guardian. brian: we are getting people off the sideline. >> that's the whole point. brian: those stopped looking for work.
only 60% of our workforce. workforce beginning to grow people sitting out saying i can't find the job this might be the opportunity. i can't rationalize this anymore. >> people with disabilities are coming back into the job market and finding work. people with criminal background are coming back into the labor force and being accepted. that's the result of a full employed economy. that's why costco is raising wages. that's why all kinds of groups of people who have been not exactly marginalized but not been in the labor force to the same degree they are coming back. in. brian: have you thought about doing your show today on fox bills 9 to noon? >> i have given it a lot of thought. brian: and? >> i'm going to do. brian: 9 to noon fbn. >> can't resist. steve: jobs numbers live at 8:30. ainsley: teacher under fire after asking a student to wash ashes off his head on ash wednesday. her response. steve: my goodness.

the big scene with first female led super hero. >> we can't do this alone. we need you. ♪ >> i'm not what you think i am. steve: all right. here with his review is fox news contributor and movie critic kevin mccarthy joining us from our nation's capital. kevin, this looks pretty great. >> yeah. good morning to you, brian, steve, and ainsley. honored to be with you as always. missed you guys. this film is the 21st film in the marvel cinematic universe. if you haven't seen the first 20 you might want to catch up because she's films
are getting better and better and story lines are more insane and they are all connected somehow. this movie serves as the bridge between avengers in infinity war and avengers end game. learning the power of the character of captain marvel and how she is going to help the avengers in end game
which i believe opens up in april. ing the film itself does have some great moments to it. i think the first half is a little bit slow. the second half picks up and the action getting great. larson won the oscar for room. she is amazing actor. the key here to me. the mind blowing part to me was the deaging of samuel l. jackson. if you are looking at some of the footage here they deaged him years back to the 1990s. it takes back in the 90's. steve: how do they do that? >> technology they have now. ainsley: can they do that to me? >> it's actually pretty cool. they put dots on his face and actually go back to his earlier films in the 1990s one of the movies they use
called the negotiator and take references from those faces and make his face using cgi but also on stage performance to make him look years younger. the movie itself though i thought it was a bit underwhelming compared to avengers infinity war. 3 out of 5. i thought bree larson i didn't particularly buy her as captain marvel. you find yourself loving the 90's nostalgia. two ending credit scenes in the end of the film. teaser for the next avengers movie 3 out of 5 for captain marvel a bit underwhelming and the director's style in these marvel films wasn't as apparent as it was in infinity war. brian: you don't have much of an opinion on that. let's move on to something else. triple frontier. let's watch a clip and get your review. >> all right. >> i have never had a feeling as pure or proud as completing a mission with all of you.

good to bernie. he hasn't been good for vermont. we need president trump who says jobs. jobs are what you need. vermont has -- i mean, candidates run on that. you know, we need jobs in vermont. and we don't have that like my son-in-law was transferred to austin, texas where there is a job for him on every corner. we don't have those jobs here. pete: why have those jobs gone elsewhere? >> bernie would go into ibm and one of the vps tell me i'm a we tired realtor. one of the vp tells us that guy better not come in here again because we don't have to be here here and they're are gone. pete: chased them away. >> vermont is not business-friendly. bernie bad mouths the hand that feeds us. we need business. do you know what i mean? pete: you can be antibusiness until you need a job. great stuff. ann maria you described yourself as the a domestic goddess you are retired.
how do you feel the president is doing? what are you post passionate about. >> i think is he doing a great job. i love the fact is he all about america and what america is about, our freedom, our rights. i'm really all about the border right now. i think it's so important and he is really got the backbone. he says what he means and means what he says. we really need to keep the illegal immigrants out of our country and, you know, i don't think there is enough emphasis on the fact that they can come here, they can. but they need to come here legally. pete: yeah. well said. olga, your husband is a border patrol agent. you have been in vermont for 14 years. obviously the border is something you are passionate about? >> yes. i come from san diego and my parents live very close to the southern border we used to see the chaos in the 1990s of the people that would pour in and when they
expanded the border fence, it actually showed that it was effective. it did help stop the flow of illegal immigration. immigrants coming into the country and many of them started heading towards arizona and texas. so, it's not that we don't want them here. it's just that there is a way that they can enter legally and i think that the democrats should be promoting legal immigration so that way these people don't have to risk their lives or children's lives and going through these dangers and all they are doing is also, you know, it's not helping stop the flow of the drugs that are coming in that are pouring in and we have drug problem in vermont. so i don't know why we continue to promote this open borders. like it's something that, you know, everybody should be a concern and i'm glad that the president is doing something about it to help out. pete: really, really well said and very informed. thank you very much, olga. i have to stay to both of you we are in the middle of bernie country do you ever feel uncomfortable wearing that make america great

>> it's impossible to monitor that. brian: especially if you are a terrorist. cops aren't going to be happy. >> cops aren't going to be happy. nsa other protective government agencies know how to get into this technology anyway. it's not as though -- i don't have those security concerns just yet. but i have concerns about facebook is up to next. is it going to make our lives better or just make him rich? steve: okay. thank you very much. ainsley: have a good weekend. goofed to see you. brian: coming up straight ahead, nancy pelosi defending all of the investigations into president trump. >> this is our constitutional responsibility to have oversight over the executive branch. brian: really? how do voters feel? i have a new poll i'm willing to share. ainsley: plus, one democrat wants to lower the voting age to 16. could that be just to sly way to get more people to vote on the left? our next guest says yes.

teens to generally swing to the left. steve: there have you have cabot phillips joining us from our nation's capital. why is she suggesting we lower it from 18 where i think it has been since the early 1970s down to 16. >> they're is nothing more than a political ploy masquerading as being about equal rights. the left knows they control much of the education system. it's not just colleges. oftentimes high schools are heavily swayed towards the left as well. they know if this would have passed which thankfully it did not there would have been millions of 16 and 17-year-olds not only influenced by pierce and social pressure to vote for democrats but also many times influenced by the education that they were getting. i understand the sentiment of saying let's get young people involved in politics. that's certainly a noble endeavor and we should encourage that voting is not the right method of doing that there are plenty of other ways that wouldn't be as disastrous this would be a terrible decision to do. this. ainsley: young people usually vote democratically, right?
vote for the democrat? >> it's not just about that though. it's also about the idea of as voters it's all about having a skin in the game. when you are 1u6 and 17, you are not paying taxes and making healthcare decisions you are not taking out loans and making serious financial decisions even the young people in high school that are paying taxes are legally his listed as dependent because they are just that they are dependent. there is nothing wrong with being young and not having responsibilities but it's a whole other issue to give a 16-year-old the power to elect someone that's going to be directly impacting millions of americans and not necessarily impacting them directly. brian: yeah. if you are 18 you can get drafted it only makes sense you should be able to vote. odd you can't drink for another three years. cabot, the other thing is you have been on campuses of late. where are they trending? >> it's absolutely trending towards a more socialist movement. many young people have been convinced that the government is the solution to all their problems. i think, again, that plays a role in them wanting to lower the voting age. some people, i might trust with voting. i'm sure ainsley at 16 was
perfectly ready to vote. i don't know about brian and steve on set there. but, keep in mind, being 16 now is very different than being 16 in the 1980s or 1990s. ainsley: i would have voted for somebody totally different when i was 16. >> remember when the left was saying we need to raise the age to buy a rifle 18, 19, 20-year-olds are not mature enough to make a decision to affect all of society. brian: you can't have it both ways. thanks, cabot. >> appreciate it. steve: the house voting to condemn all hate following the anti-semitic remarks from congresswoman ilhan omar. the republicans calling it a sham. the backlash pouring in from capitol hill coming up. brian: so were democrats calling it a sham enemy cases. ainsley: congressman devin nunes, tammy bruce, geraldo rivera and jeanine pirro all here live ♪ ♪

of representatives yesterday when nancy pelosi, who has got a split party on her hand. brian: do you think so? steve: they finally came up with a resolution. remember, we have been telling you ever since ilhan omar the freshman congresswoman said those things that were very anti-semitic. brian: like benjamins, baby. saying have allegiance to another country meaning israel. steve: exactly. then there were calls it was bipartisan. we have got to do something. come up with a resolution and denounce her. but then, you know, a number of democrats said if you sanction her without mentioning the hatred she has faced as a somali refugee, that infuriated a lot of democrats because they say she is a victim. so, ultimately they came up with a watered down version that doesn't specify anti-semitic resolution. instead it just goes against all hate. brian: this is a travesty, a gutless move by a democratic party coming apart at the seems. and you are looking at the leadership there on the
left. it's actually on the right. and they just hugged each other. the freshman are running the caucus. and, believe me, in the beginning was let's condemn anti-semitism. can we agree on that in the answer is no. we have to do that only if we condemn anti-african-americanism. native americanism. if you condemn people. condemn others of color. muslims, hindus, sheiks, in other words, the stuff you learned well steve learned in first grade i learned in second. you just don't be mean to people which means it's a collosal waste of time. they didn't even have the guts to put her name in this when she has had a track record back to 2012. ainsley: how sad is this they have to put this down on paper in anti-hate resolution. shouldn't we all be anti-hate anyway. brian: unbelievable. ainsley: congressman lee zeldin from new york is slamming the resolution. 23 republicans voted no they say this is watered down. defends just about everything instead of an
anti-semitism which was the real reason for this resolution. >> i apparently am giving rep omar more credit than the speaker is because i don't believe she is naive. i believe that she knows exactly what she is doing. if that member was a republican that member's name would be in this resolution and this resolution would be all about condemning anti-semitism and done so forcefully. anti-semitism must be condemned unequivocally and emphatically. steve: that's why a number of democrats thought about voting no but nancy pelosi had them all vote yes. a number of republicans said absolutely not because. ainsley: they are loyal to each other. steve: did it not specify it was anti-semitic. that's why the republicans voted against it. nancy pelosi went out of her way though to make excuses for omar. she said, quote: i feel confident that her words were not based on any anti-semitic attitude. and then jim clyburn the
number three in the house on the democrat side. brian: this is classic. steve: he claimed omar's own experience as a somali refugee means bigotry is more personal to her than the children of holocaust survivors. brian: by the way, find yourself a quiet room and try to wrap your head around what the heck he is talking about. eliot engel who came out originally we have got to condemn this. a democrat said i'm disappointed we weren't able to separate the resolutions that condemn anti-semitism. that's what our colleague said very hateful term. have some guts. nancy pelosi three weeks ago, she is such a great leader. she has everyone's respect. she has nobody's respect. she can't control people with two months' experience. this is a travesty. ainsley: when she came out and condemned her at first everyone thought wow, wonderful of her to do that. i can't believe she did that. normally the democrats are so loyal to one another. then now she is walking it back and saying she really didn't mean. this she doesn't know what she is saying. nancy pelosi is so scared to lose those voters.
those really really progressive voters that aoc and that this lady omar, congresswoman omar bring to the table. she wants all the votes. she wants the democrats together. she wants everyone to be loyal. that's why she was able to condemn her in a way kind of, a watered down condemnation by including so many other forms of dig got tri. brian: she is more powerful today than ever before. she did not get any rebuke. she should be high fiving everybody. here is alexandria ocasio-cortez yesterday. >> i think it's a learning experience and it's part of the fact that when we elect the most diverse democratic caucus that we have in pretty much ever, it means that we're -- we have new communities at the table, new conversations that need to be had. and we have to learn how to have conversations differently every time. >> congresswoman omar was unfairly singled out? >> i think that -- i think
that -- you know, i think that things came down on her a little too hard. steve: things came down on her a little too hard. brian: oh my goodness. steve: aoc sent out a fundraising email saying that she and omar and tlaib were being targeted for questioning the influence of money in the u.s. political system. ainsley: the more you say something and you don't mean it and came out a way you didn't mean it and you made a mistake you would apologize. sometimes people get emotional on television and they say i'm so sorry i never wanted to offend. that hasn't happened in this case. she has made several comments. steve: ainsley, you are coming down a little too hard on her. ainsley: it would be different if she apologized. i'm sorry i'm learning from my mistakes. i didn't know i was offending people but that hasn't been done. brian: let's switch gears and talk about coming down hard. that's what nancy pelosi seems to be doing. nancy pelosi's party seems to be doing on the president of the united states with the ridiculous demand for thousands of the hundreds of
documents, interviews with 80-plus people. that's just with one committee. so, there is also many people, including david axelrod have tweeted out have we really thought about this in the big picture? yesterday it was speculated that maybe condemning the president's kids could have a negative effect? here is speaker pelosi trying to justify this avalanche of investigations on the president. >> what kind of evidence does the house right now have on trump to launch all these investigations on him and couldn't this possibly be overreach. >> no. >> especially. >> this is our constitutional responsibility. >> where is the evidence. >> to have oversight over the executive branch. and the evidence that they will have is what they will gather doing the oversight bringing to the american people. steve: see, that is the new democratic talking point. we are doing all these investigations because for the first two years of the trump administration with the republicans in charge in the house there was no oversight. so we're just simply
catching up. that's their angle. the big question is whether or not the people of the united states look at this as overreach, a congressional overreach or do they think, you know, do this along with mueller oh it's absolutely appropriate. ainsley: are the people smart enough to see through all of this there was a monmouth poll during the cohen hearings. people polled democrats are more interested in undermining trump than getting at the truth. look 46 percent said they think they're interested in undermining the president instead of finding the facts and getting to the truth. brian: other poll to share with you opinions of the investigation 67 percent said opinions regardless. 29% information come out change public opinion. also another poll out there that said more people believe michael cohen that believe the president. what i found fascinating and talk to devin nunes about this turns out according to catherine herridge two sources that adam schiff sat down four separate times for a total of 10 hours to meet with michael cohen. why would you need to do
that if you were just curious about what michael cohen knows or were you actually coaching? isn't it normal procedure to have a person in the other party in those meetings? we will ask devin nunes about that shortly. that is to me outrageous. steve: just that we're finding out about that now. big question is whether the public opinion polls will change after the mueller report is released. there is some speculation it could actually come out today. stay tuned. brian: keep in mind, too. paul manafort verdict if you saw the outrage and disdain that people had because he isn't spending the rest of his life in prison and could be four years. priming the pump. can you imagine if the mueller probe doesn't reveal collusion and conspiracy. can you imagine the outrage on the other side. steve: let's remember paul manafort next week is going to be steps the for another conviction which could land him 10 years. ainsley: hand it over to jillian who has a fox news alert for us. jillian: get you caught up on news.

you are killing me, man! steve: embattled r and b singer lashing out on explosive interview since being charged with abuse. now the writer for the atlantic sees a parallel between that outburst and brett kavanaugh's capitol hill testimony writing, quote: the substance of what the two men have been accused of differs vastly but their responses and the cultural scripts they draw upon rhyme. brett kavanaugh southed about kristin blasey ford's allegations being unfair given the life he has lived. while kelly argued that his previous acquittal meant that the present allegations were also unfair. joining us for reaction to the parallel joe concha media reporter for the hill and radio talk show host on wor here in new york. joe, good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: what do you think about the comparison, the parallels between these two televised denials? >> i wish i had a bible next
to me because i would swear on it that what when i read that piece i thought somehow it was a farcical piece like from some sort of comedy site, there is no way, steve, that you could write that sentence the substance of what the two men had been accused of differs vastly. yeah, you think? you can go back to 1994 and find that r. kelly married his 15-year-old protege. there is marriage certificates and stuff and then in 1996, he started a relationship with a 15-year-old. 2,000 "chicago sun times" published a report on kelly having sexual relationships on girls as young as 15. and then you could go through the years, 19 years since, dozens of accusations, he has now been charged with 10 counts of having inappropriate relations and other with underaged girls. in other words these are real things. with brett kavanaugh he was accused of things by three different women that nobody could corroborate. and to say by the way back in that same paragraph that you just read that brett
kavanaugh shouted about kristin blasey ford that kelly argued. go back and playing that tape again does it look like he is arguing or having a breakdown on national television? this is a joke, steve, i don't know how else to put it. steve: we have video from september 27th, 2018. it is of brett kavanaugh. look at the intensity level. >> this confirmation process has become a national disgrace. this whole two-week effort has been a calculated and orchestrated political hit. my family and my name have been totally and permanently destroyed by vicious and false additional accusations. steve: all right, joe? >> okay. let's see r. kelly stood up and started crying and walking in circles and gayle king, give her credit the fact that she was able to stay so composed. that was something else. i don't think i would have done the same thing. brett kavanaugh doesn't stand up and start screaming
at kamala harris or cory booker or any of the democrats during those confirmation hearings. so, to compare the two here, i mean, i know that people also compared jussie smollett to brett kavanaugh. that's remarkable to me. it's the same thing. compare everything to brett kavanaugh because kavanaugh just offered up a passionate but composed defense of being accused of things where there is no evidence while with r. kelly there is a mountain of evidence and there is no comparison, steve. steve: what then explains the comparison? why do they make the comparison? >> well, we are in a business, unfortunately, that awards cliques in these situations. awards ratings if you put it on television. in this case no accountability again. if i were the editor i would never let this piece see the light of day. if it got by me somehow i would tell whoever wrote this why don't you take a little one or two week vacation and take some time off and think about what you are writing right now. steve: joe concha with his point of view media reporter

person revoked their citizenship by claiming -- by basically verbally and publicly stating they were no longer a citizen and fights against us. that's exactly what she has done. so, the first question is whether or not legal path to prove she was never a citizen that would allow us to keep her away. the second pass would be has she done things to revoke that citizenship legally or hold up in a court of law. i appreciate we have an administration that is following these paths and looking for the full proof approach to keep her away from this amazing country. brian: i worry about the precedent. you can go ahead and take that risk and join this errant terrorist group if it falls apart like this one, no problem, i will just come back and, you know, go to the gym. >> yeah. no. if she comes back here she is going to do a lot of things other than go to the gym. we can't take that risk and we shouldn't take that risk. we deal with enough things from homegrown terrorists and lone wolf to internet influence on people that are vulnerable. we deal with enough of it as it is. you know, we always want to
point fingers at guns when mass tragedies happen and rarely take the time to find out how that person was influenced and how that person became a killer. here is someone that we know is influenced, we know could be a killer. and we have to k if we can we have to do it legally and respect the laws of our land. it looks like this administration is doing that i'm just happy that their perspective is to look for the legal path to keep her out of our country. steve: thank you for joining us from your house this morning on this friday. ainsley: thank you for your service. the february jobs report is coming out in half an hour we will bring you those numbers. brian: somebody who has a job geraldo rivera he works for us: judge jeanine's show seen over the weekends. devin nunes in washington but today he is in new york. he will be joining us. great show. don't miss it. there will be a quiz at the end. ♪ keep on turning ♪

on the foreign relations committee i think that is a probe i have not yet undertaken but i will say, and i will state again, you cannot reasonably expect her or talib to have the same point of view as jerry nadler or chuck schumer. these are very, very different geopolitical experiences. i've covered the middle east since 1972. i am jewish. i have seen the inequality there. i've seen the disquiet there. i have seen how fiercely the jewish-american population protects israel from all critics. it is, it is a new age. the united states is reaching out to these sunni governments trying to get them engaged on israel's side. i think israel will be fine but israel and apec, american israel political action committee cannot reasonably expect one

you're squeezing him to get him to go after trump so you can get something to impeach the president with. right. >> this is clear to me a judge who was savvy what was going on. this guy is not convicted of any crimes. he pretty much led a blameless life. we sentenced him far below the guidelines to 47 months and for time served, nine months already. he will serve just a little over three years. make no mistake, in the end next week he will be sentenced by judge amy berman for counts of conspiracy. he could get five years on each of those counts of conspiracy. she can decide to impose that sentence consecutively instead of concurrently with the sentence that he got from justice ellis. connell: so do you think it is in a way, this backs up people who say there was no collusion conspiracy because they always point to paul manafort and his eastern european connections and
the oligarch and polls that are sharing, no, that is not the problem here. the problem is with tax fraud. the problem failing to file reports on foreign bank accounts and the problem is income tax returns? >> there is no question. that is why the judge made it very clear yesterday. look, this has nothing to do with russian collusion. the judge was very clear about that. that caused him to be somewhat sympathetic for manafort. knowing he was a guy getting squeezed big time, came to court in a wheelchair. it was serious -- i don't listen to this. this is bloomberg's tom o'brien comparing, tim o'brien, sorry, comparing, we can't get the names right. comparing paul manafort to hannibal lecter, fictional murder. >> sort of like what they wheeled hannibal lecter in on the gurney in silence of the lambs. i have very little sympathy for paul manafort at this point.
i think among everyone in this drama he has been, probably apart from the president. one of the people who seems to have this stone cold lack of conscience. steve: hannibal lecter was a cannibal. >> he killed eight people. this was a guy who committed tax fraud. the left is so incensed with the fact that he didn't get more time. that they're not getting donald trump. that is why they're doing these new hearings now. they can't find anything and they are determined to obstruct. the tim o'brien would say that is really shocking. he should be embarrassed. that is just dumb. steve: talk a little bit about r. kelly -- >> speak of dumb? steve: we know how you feel about that. r. kelly sat down with gayle king. it was emotional interview. we played over last couple days some of that. this morning cbs airing some of his girlfriends speaking out. listen to this, judge. >> when i was 17, my parents were actually making me, trying
me to get me to take photos with him. take sexual videos with him. both of our parents are trying to get money to scam. i'm crying, because you guys don't know the truth. you believe [bleep] is what he is saying this is [bleep] lies for money. steve: what do you think? >> i think these two young women are very connected to r. kelly. they believe in him. they said they love him. and that they didn't have relations with him when they were, you know, in that age group when he could be prosecuted. and they believe in him. very angry with their parents. steve: evidently he was coughing behind the scenes. sneakses in on interview, tries to end the interview. look, if i'm the prosecutor i can't wait to get r. kelly on the stand. this guy will flip out on two questions. i mean he is is not in control of himself.
he is screaming everyone is trying to kill him. he is now in jail for not paying child support of $161,000. and he just said in the news yesterday, i only have 350,000 in the bank. if i'm family court judge, i'm saying dump that money now, so you can get out of jail. he will be in jail for a long time. the docuseries they did on him, a lot of victims. there seems to be sufficient evidence. whether or not he had sex with the two young women when they were under age is not really the issue right now. he is a control freak. his ex-wife says he not only beat her, he hog-tied her. i know about domestic violence. hog-tieing is something you do when you are totally humiliating and demoralizing your wife. it is bad stuff. this guy is going away for a long time. steve: judge, we'll be watching your show this weekend. >> good, i'm glad. connell: you know what? i have to see how much you pay. >> i don't pay anything. connell: who do you have on?
>> do i know? we have kevin mccarthy on. we have jim jordan on. got a great panel. me doing my open. i will be outraged about something. connell: you are always outraged. >> we'll be watching along with your mama. connell: you seem really nice. steve: meanwhile a fox news alert, one minute from now the february jobs report will come out. we'll bring you the numbers live on the other side of a brief timeout. connell: pete hegseth having breakfast with friends in vermont. pete, talk. pete: i will talk. i made friends with a couple bernie supporters. patty married 38 years. you run a heating and plumbing business. patty is retired registered nurse, i'm sorry, not retired. we'll talk about bernie and other folks. you're in the backyard of bernie sanders. i haven't had the maple syrup but i will have it when the segment is over. stick around.

ainsley: we are back with a fox news alert. the february jobs report just released. connell: wow, this is terrible. just 20,000 jobs were added last month. that is less than what economists predicted by about 160,000. steve: they had expected 180,000 jobs last month. while here is a bit of good news. the unemployment rate ticked down to 3.8%. nonetheless, so you got the unemployment at 3.8%. it is down but, only added 20,000 new jobs which is being described by some as a huge miss. connell: how could you describe it any differently? makes you wonder if they should have a recount. pete hegseth, co-host of "fox and friends weekend," which according to pete is on for eight hours saturday and sunday combined. you're at the maple city diner
in st. albens, vermont. pete: just 30 miles north. some kind of miss i wish they would miss on the bill in restaurants. we're here in bernie country. we've been asking for bernie supporters come out. we had a, two of them come out to talk to us. chandler, you run a heating and plumbing business, which means you're never without work. >> always. pete: four degrees. you wrote in bernie sanders last cycle. why do you support him so much? >> i believe bernie is for the smaller people, not sizewise politicallywise, economicallywise. he is not part of the rich republican or democratic party. bernie seems to listen to us. hears what he says, hears what we say and acts on that. he grew up poor. you know, i did not grow up rich. i believe he is going to bail us out of the political parties here. we have crazies and the
anti-crazies. so bierne if i will show some balance i hope. pete: what about critics say he runs as democratic socialist. they look at socialism, president trump recently said america will never be a socialist country. are you worried about what socialism could do to the growth of our economy? >> first of all i don't vote the party, okay? i may be a registered, whatever, but i will vote the person. so if bernie is democratic socialist, you know, party leader, it is going to take an act of god literally to get our country into socialism. i am not worried whatsoever about that. pete: you're not worried about socialism? you like bernie? >> i like bernie. i like what he stands for. pete: let me ask you, patty, that word socialism scares a lot of people. they get worried. they see what haps in venezuela, see what happens in other countries, the guy says he is for the little guy, things get
worse for everybody and little guy. are you worried about bernie as a socialist? >> i'm not worried about it at all. i think bernie will bring balance to this country. i think other people that will work with bernie will balance him out. i think bernie has a lot of great ideas. i think he listens to people. that is the biggest thing that has been a problem. nobody is listening. pete: results are important. a lot of folks i talked to this morning. they said they leave businesses lever month as tax burden go up. it is not a business-friendly climate. is that worrisome. bernie has been in charge or leader for three or four decades? >> no. i think he is the proof in the pudding. i think he has done a great job. he has been in the senate, i think he is just been, i don't have anything bad to say about him. i'm not worried about taxes. i think again, i think he going to bring balance to the political system of our times. pete: thank you both for talking
to us. they're smart. they're true vermont terse. next to the stove. very warm here. good spot. i appreciate it. i want to talk to brian, truck driver, good to see you. thanks for saying hello. former democrat. you do not support bernie. what are your concerns about bernie sanders? >> bernie sanders has been in vermont couple years, couple decades. hasn't done anything up here. talks about 15-dollar an hour minimum wage. he hasn't done anything for the minimum wage in vermont. farce the economy up here, i mean right now vermont offers people $10,000 to move to vermont. so that is -- pete: people are running to texas because the taxes are so low but they have to pay people to come to vermont? >> they're fleeing vermont. most senior citizens flee vermont move to florida honestly is the biggest state they're moving to. the reason is you can't afford to live here. the cost of property taxes is
through the roof. the state income tax is through the roof. and their ocean programs do nothing -- social programs do nothing for the common people. price of medical care up here is ridiculous. every ready battery company, not a half a mile up the road. two months ago they closed up and left. pete: you're a smart dude. thank you very much for the insight. we appreciate it. go to amanda. you're a millenial. you don't like the title. you're in medical billing, a lot of millenials love bernie open to socialism. what do you say to that? >> no to socialism. it terrifies me actually. pete: you support the p president. why? >> everything he has done so far. exactly what he is going to do is exactly what he has done. i voted for obama the first time. the second time i didn't vote for anybody. trump came along i made sure to go to the voting box that day. pete: talked to four people.
all of them democrats at some point. two no longer. getting pulse of people in bernie country. back to you guys in new york. steve: great reporting this morning from maple city diner. look at the new jobs numbers. it came out nine minutes ago with a fox news alert. they were expecting to add 180,000 new jobs. instead the economy added 20,000. connell: worst since september 2017 in terms of jobs added. steve: areas gained jobs, manufacturing, service industries. biggest losers, mining, construction and retail. ainsley: labor participation stayed the same january to february, which is 63.2% are out there working. which means 36.8% are not working. maybe retired or too young. connell: added 198,000 jobs not considered in the labor force. now they're participating seems to be in the labor force. a lot could be the fact there is a lot of open jobs, not enough people to fill them, although
you still have under 70% under labor participation. steve: wages rise 3.4% from a year earlier and share of part-time workers has dropped. ainsley: couldn't it also mean so many people are out there working because unemployment numbers are down, some of the lowest numbers, could be some people are out there working, they like their jobs they don't need to go other places? connell: futures dropped 200 points after the jobs report. here is jillian who has got a job. jill yes i do. i love my job. a 2-year-old boy gets pneumonia from eating popcorn. his parents rush to the hospital with his breathing problems. they found six pieces of popcorn lodged in his lung. they warn parents children under five are not strong enough to pop up small pieces of food like popcorn kernels. facebook could track you even if you don't have an account.

♪ steve: all eyes on the capitol as we await robert mueller's highly anticipated report on the russia probe. could it be coming out today? ainsley: we will see but will the left accept the report if robert mueller finds no trump-russia collusion? connell: ranking member of the house intelligence committee, california congressman devin nunez. michael cohen who dominated the scene last two weeks according to our own catherine herridge met four times total of 12 hours one-on-one with adam schiff? were you aware of that? are you supposed to be told about this, meeting with a witness before they testify? >> it shouldn't be shocking right? they continue to do this. they met with cohen. they were clearly devise how they will roll out a new narrative. the last two weeks was rolling out a new narrative. despite, major issue despite all of that, they still came out and came out with a fake news story that has now been debunked,
somehow his testimony was changed, that was before congress by trump's lawyers. that is what the media went with. that was the narrative. but ended up being a fake news story. no matter how much witness tampering you do you're not going to find collusion in this, unless you talk about the collusion that the democratic party and clinton campaign were doing with russians. steve: are you suggesting there was witness tampering? >> well, you know, probably not in the legal sense, we're congress, legislative branch, there is nothing illegal about talking to witnesses beforehand but if you're running a real investigation the way you would do it is republican and democrat lawyers would meet with the lawyers of whoever is going to testify. but in this case sounds like they were just meeting with the witness themselves and this, not a serious investigation which it hasn't been since the beginning of this year. ainsley: john brennan is predicting more indictments from special counsel robert mueller
in this russia probe. he says some of them could involve president trump's family members. do you predict that? >> i would find that hard to believe. ainsley: why? >> well look, what you really, what you're really looking at here is collusion, right? the whole point of this mueller investigation was, was there collusion or not? and i have joked about this many times before but it is like this mythical creature that's out there running around somewhere around the capitol. you've got, you know, dozens and dozens of reporters who spend all day looking for this mythical creature. the democrats, they prance out a new, new mythical creature every day. the press follows it. but the reality is, even in the mueller indictments they make all the indictments read like something that will be really serious. this is really the collusion evidence, when in reality the collusion is right in front of us, right? look, there were prosecutors on
mueller's team, even today, that are still there supposedly, i don't know if they're still meeting or not, remember these guys were meeting with the democrats, they were taking in this steele dossier which was the dirt. so these guys were involved in this whole time. they're part of it. the mueller team is part of the collusion. they were taking information supposedly came directly from russians. steve: we'll see what happens. devin nunez from california. thank you. >> great to be with you. steve: meanwhile she brings us the headlines every morning. jillian is bringing breakfast with her mom and aunt. we're "cooking with friends" up next. ainsley: first we'll check with bill hemmer for what is coming up at top of the hour. >> we're taking a to-go order you guys, if that is possible. you out there, smitty? >> i will take one. >> you want to save a friend. want to call a friend? thank you. we're waiting for the president to depart for the deadly damage in alabama. there is lot to comment on. house democrats and hate
